You can help provide scholarships for Camp Invention!

Do you know Sharon Goodin? She is an amazing teacher and is very passionate about making this wonderful STEM camp available to as many children as possible. Here’s a plea from Sharon:

I am directing Camp Invention – Brooklyn STEM Academy! Some parents need your help so their children can participate in this educational summer program. Camp Invention provides an opportunity for young minds to exercise their creativity and use their imagination in ways they don’t normally get to in the classroom. Please consider donating at Crowd-Funding by May 23rd! Last year we were able to help over 20 students and raise over $2300. I want to break that record this year! Please help the students of our community.

You may donate online. Thank you!
